During the summer of 1985; Granada appeared to rest the Aussie Soaps for a few weeks. Was this just in Granadaland or across the ITV Network?

Also does anybody know why?

Hope this is ok to ask this on this Forum.

Thames (and the stations who relied on its feed - Tyne Tees, Border and UTV) rested The Sullivans over that summer and instead showed the Irish serial Glenroe. I very much doubt this was linked to Granada’s decision and the other Aussie soaps continued in London and elsewhere.

What did Granada show in their place?

Glenroe was shown in the Granada region too and all the other Aussie Soaps were rested and a variety of programmes were shown in their place.
